I Believed In Akufo-Addo, But I’m Disappointed – D-Black
Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, popularly known as D-Black, is one of Ghana’s most successful entertainment moguls. He has joined the long list of Ghanaian celebrities who have voiced their dissatisfaction with His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the president of Ghana, and his administration.
In an interview with Giovani Caleb on TV3’s Showbiz 360, the well-known rapper and record label owner said that he had faith in the principles and abilities of the president and the governing party, but that he is now completely disillusioned with the daily suffering that Ghanaians endure.
He claims that the president has not kept many of the promises he made during his 2016 campaign, and he also says that the nation’s people are devastated because they have been suffering for a very long time.
“I am disappointed in him, but I do not know what happened. I believed in him.” Since many of the promises made by the government have not been kept, I am disappointed in them. We are not blind to the struggles that the country’s youth and attire are facing.”
“There are certain incorrect items. The state of our economy is not ideal. Medical facilities are insufficient. There are awful roads. There is a tonne going on. Many people are not content,” he claimed.
The popular “Vera” singer, who also serves as Black Avenue’s CEO, Muzik, went on to say that Ghanaian celebrities should speak out about important issues affecting the country.
He said, “They expect us to speak and air our views and opinions on these things because we are entertainers and public figures, and people look up to us.”
Even though he was disappointed, D-Black said, “We are just hoping for the best,” expressing hope for a better future.
